Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular café business, which is ideally located in a busy shopping centre within Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The business was established by our client in 2007 and is only now offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a change of career and family commitments. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £214,554 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 43%.
Our client offers a wide variety of high quality, home-made produce including full breakfasts, Panini’s, baguettes, salads, soups, desserts and speciality hot and cold beverages. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The premises boast a well-equipped kitchen and preparation area and cafe with five tables internally and a further 17 tables externally.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business, as well as expanding the range of cuisine offered. A new owner could also embark on a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered and perhaps offer a local delivery service. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and busy café business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
